Taking A Measure of Creative Placemaking

This report is an overview of the findings of Metris Arts Consulting's studies How Artist Space Matters and How Art Spaces Matter IIThis report summarizes Metris Arts Consulting's in-depth examination of five Artspace projects: the Northern Warehouse Artists’ Cooperative, the Tilsner Artists’ Cooperative, and the Traffic Zone Center for Visual Art - all in Minnesota; as well as the Tashiro Kaplan Artist Lofts in Seattle, and the Riverside Artist Lofts in Reno. The three Minnesota projects are among Artspace’s earliest efforts and therefore address questions of long-term impact and sustainability. Both Reno and Seattle reflect Artspace models where there is either a major nonprofit anchor tenant (Sierra Arts in Reno) or a substantial presence of non-residential space (the 16 galleries that anchor Tashiro Kaplan in Seattle).
